Handicap Information
Carriages are a great way for handicapped or disabled people to experience the French Quarter. If they can walk up steps with assistance, they will be able to board our carriages with ease. We do provide stepping stools and assistance. For people with no mobility, no ability to stand, these people may not be able to access the seat of the carriage. Our private carriages are more open air, so there is more ability for these individuals to be placed into those carriages, or larger people. Wheelchairs, strollers, and walkers can be left behind at our Jackson Square boarding location, and our on-site supervising manager will look after them. We suggest that all important items be taken on the ride.

Cancellation Policy
Customers may cancel at least 72 hours prior to their arrival date and time to receive a full refund minus a $5 service fee. Customers that cancel after the 72 hour period will not be eligible for a refund. The carriages are covered and therefore operate rain or shine, but if weather is severe and the vendor calls of the tour you may be rescheduled for a later time/date or a full refund will be issued. No-shows will not be refunded. Customer may make changes to the reservation without any fees as long as it's outside the 72 hour cancellation period. Tour directors of large groups must make sure the group is on time for scheduled pick-ups.

    Carriage ride

    I enjoyed this but it was hard to hear the guide. Other than that it was ok. I probably wouldn't do it again though.

    Not so haunted

    The carriage ride was great. This had zero scare factor. Not what l was expecting. Only stories was told of some of the hotels there. I wanted to ride down a scary road. Didn't happen.

    Great Haunted History Carriage Tour

    I have been on several Haunted History tours but never one by carriage until this one. We took the 10pm tour and it was perfect! This is a great way to experience more of the city and hear more stories without having to walk all over the town. The guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The ride was pleasant, informative and fun! I had my 12 yr old grand daughter with me and she liked it very much too! I would recommend this trip to all ages.

    Overall, tour was wonderful; a bit more of a history tour than a "ghost tour", but still loved that, too!
